Wishing You A Tweet Day

Hi everyone!  I'm back again with another tweet birdie card.  Today's card features the Tweet House digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.  I'm also playing along in the DPDC9 challenge to create any project using a Doodle Pantry image.  My favorite birdie is the one in the bird house with it's hind legs hanging down and peaking out the hole below.  I also love the birdie above it hanging upside down, sooooo cute!!!

My card base is Brocade Blue layered with PTI White then Kraft embossed using the Birds & Swirls Embossing Folder and Wild Wasabi patterned paper.  I stitched around the edges the added a strip of white ribbon around the PTI White.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on Brocade Blue.

The sentiment was printed on PTI White, punched out using the Designed Label Punch then distressed using a sponge and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  To embellish the card I added a white bow, three flowers punched from Kraft cardstock using the Trio Flower Punch and finished with a pearl in the center and some small pearls along the edge of the image. 

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
